We can all agree, I hope, that we are currently in an age where it is more recognized how much our emotional health affects our overall well being. That is not to say that either understanding or acceptance is complete.
Far from it. Unfortunate and unhelpful attitudes certainly still exist, and probably always will to some degree. Sweeping generalizations are still used by some, and nowhere is this more obvious than in the field of women’s emotional health and wellness.
There is little doubt that women are more emotional than men. What is sad is that this can be viewed simplistically as being bad, or a lesser state. Women experience emotions the way they do, and are affected by them as they are, for a raft of reasons.
Genetic, evolutionary, societal and environmental pressures combine with hormone influences, and all this is experienced and expressed as emotion.
Today’s podcast is to help you as a woman understand why women feel emotions as they do and why their emotions are such a huge factor in their health, wellbeing and happiness.
This will hopefully help to prevent the two main ways women can be victims of their emotions – firstly by feeling guilty for experiencing them as strongly as they do, and secondly by adopting a victim mindset.
You have the right to experience your emotions, but that doesn’t mean you have to be a slave to them. You can learn proven methods for achieving greater emotional balance, to increase your feelings of self-empowerment and ultimately, happiness.
In today’s show we will explore times in our lives and things in our lives that can have an emotional impact on us as women and ways that we can help ourselves to have better emotional wellness.
